The first digital photos from the big opening night event at the brand new Lomography Gallery Store in Los Angeles!

What a night! The new (and we mean really new… like the paint-is-still-drying-new!) Lomography Gallery Store in LA is officially open! Last night Los Angeles welcomed Lomography with open arms, as 500 or so new friends joined us for a huge celebration filled with loads of food and drink, live Mariachi music, and the unveiling of a truly breathtaking LomoWall.

Here are the first digital photos from the night. Our film is on the way to the lab, so stay tuned for the analogue photos coming soon!

Enjoy!
